The Bonus Antlerless Harvest Authorization sale is one of the most popular events for the DNR. Depending on the number of customers trying to use the site at the beginning of the sale, you may experience a waiting period before you proceed.

The 2018 Bonus Antlerless Harvest Authorization sale begins at 10:00 a.m. each day:

  • August 13 — Northern and Central Forest Zones; 87,525 harvest authorizations available
  • August 14 — Central Farmland Zone; 100,000 harvest authorizations available
  • August 15 — Southern Farmland Zone; 40,775 harvest authorizations available
  • August 16 — All remaining harvest authorizations for any zone

On the date of the sale, depending upon customer demand, you may experience a waiting period before you are let into the Go Wild site. To prepare for the sale, each day at 9:45 a.m., an online queuing system will be used to manage volume in the Go Wild system. At 10:00 a.m. all online users who are on the site will be randomly assigned a number and staged into a “virtual” line regardless of the actual time you entered into the system. There is no advantage for customers who enter the site before 9:45. Please note that customers who enter the site after the randomization occurs at 10:00 will be added to the line in the order in which they arrive. Once the queue is empty, online users will go directly to the Go Wild home page for the remainder of the day.

When you access the Go Wild site, click the green “Get Started” button and follow the prompts until you reach your personalized dashboard. To purchase a Bonus Antlerless Harvest Authorization, click the blue "Buy Licenses" button from your dashboard to open the catalog. From there you will find the Bonus Antlerless Harvest Authorization at the very top of the list. If you haven't had the chance to get your license in advance, Go Wild can help you get one after you select the Bonus Antlerless Harvest Authorization.

Bonus Antlerless Harvest Authorizations may also be purchased at over 1,000 license agent locations. Customers at these locations will be in a physical line managed by each location manager.

The Wisconsin DNR thanks you for your patronage and we wish you a fun, exciting, and safe hunting experience.
